Planetary activations Tues 30 Oct and Wed 31 Oct 2018
Tues Oct 30- The day began with the Moon in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn at 3.53 am EDT. Oppositions are like see-saws. Moon in Cancer can be emotional overload and Pluto in Capricorn can be volcanic. Pay attention to what comes up today as it may activate a theme for when the North Node enters Cancer (new spiritual directions guided by intuitive wisdom) and the South Node enters Capricorn (releasing past limitation and restrictions) on Nov 06. What we want to do is balance the see-saw. When we are balanced we are able to listen to our intuitive wisdom and be guided by it as we move forward through new doorways. Whatever issues blocks us from moving forward Pluto wants us to heal and release. The Cancer Moon will inconjunct Mars in Aquarius at 6.07 am EDT and influence us until the evening. The inconjunct is a letting go energy. In this case releasing whatever blocks us from Cosmic Connection.
From 7.32 pm to 10.31 pm EDT we enter a time of release, healing, and transformation. The Cancer Moon trines Jupiter in Scorpio (releasing anything that blocks expansion of our spiritual vision) then trines Chiron in Pisces (healing our wounds of separation from Essence Self and Great Mystery). At 10.31 pm EDT the Moon trines Mercury in Scorpio (our deepest thoughts and psychic perceptions). The trine aspect is ease and flow and the removal of obstacles so we are being supported by the Universe to let go easily what no longer serves us. In the Northern Hemisphere our Animal Totem guides are Flicker Woodpecker, transition and healing love, for the Moon in Cancer and Snake, shedding the old, for Jupiter and Mercury in Scorpio. In the Southern Hemisphere your guides are Snow Goose, following your dreams and visions (Moon in Cancer) and Beaver, clearing the clutter and building the new (Jupiter and Mercury in Scorpio). Mercury is at 29 degrees Scorpio and reminds us when we transform our perceptions we change our life. But Mercury will be retrograde beginning Nov 16 in Sagittarius (our spiritual vision) returning to 29 degrees Scorpio Dec 01, moving direct at 27 degrees Scorpio on Dec 06 and re-entering Sagittarius on Dec 12. We are already in the Mercury Retrograde shadow which began Oct 29. Rather than trying to change the outer it is a time for inner transformation. Currently Mercury moves into Sagittarius in two hours asking us to focus on our spiritual beliefs and vision.
Wed Oct 31- As we mentioned earlier Mercury has just entered Sagittarius at 12.38 am EDT today. We now are supported to strengthen our spiritual beliefs. But the shadow side of Sagittarius is dogma and doctrine. Mercury in Sagittarius can be very judgmental. Since the planet of our thoughts and perceptions will retrograde Nov 16 in Sagittarius watch for the shadow side to be more prominent. The key is to be open to new ideas and explore whether you want to integrate them into your living. In the Northern Hemisphere while Mercury visits Sagittarius our Animal Totem guides are Elk, strength and stamina, and Owl, the wisdom to see the truth. In the Southern Hemisphere your guide is Deer, sensitivity and loving compassion.
Today at 4.45 am Venus retrograde in Scorpio opposes (tug of war) Uranus retrograde in Taurus. Oppositions always asks us to find balance between opposites. Spiritually Venus Rx in Scorpio asks us to enter The Mysteries and Uranus Rx in Taurus asks us to feel secure enough to open our Cosmic Consciousness (Uranus rules the Third Eye). This is the second opposition in this dance. The first was Sept 12. Venus and Uranus again activate the Grand Cross as they square the Nodes. The Universe is really asking us all to “break out of the box of unconsciousness”. (Mercury in Sagittarius opens us to Christ/Buddha Consciousness). In fact Uranus will continue to activate the Third Eye throughout November as he squares the Nodal Axis.
The next few hours might be confusing if we are not seeing things from a Cosmic Perspective. At 5.36 am EDT Mercury in Sagittarius is inconjunct Uranus Rx in Taurus (confused thinking) and at 7.02 am EDT the Moon still in Leo is inconjunct Saturn in Capricorn (confusion about your Soul Path). Clarity comes when we experience the Fourth Quarter Moon at 12.40 pm EDT. This phase is the time for revision and realignment. We are in the Fourth Quarter Phase until Nov 03 then we enter the Balsamic Moon of healing, completion, and release 11.15 pm EDT.
At 3.42 pm EDT Venus retrogrades back into 29 degrees Libra. The focus emphasised is empowerment in relationship so co-operation and balance is restored. As we mentioned Venus Retrograde in Scorpio leads us into the Mysteries. In Libra when she is retrograde it is about deepening our relationship with self so we can be our authentic self in all our relating. Even though Venus will now be travelling in Libra until Dec 02 (she moves direct on Nov 16 and re-enters Scorpio on Dec 02) she still carries the Scorpio energy. On Oct 26 she began her Scorpio Morning Star journey as Goddess of Deep Transformation. On Nov 30 Venus in Libra will oppose Uranus Rx in Aries AND the North Node in Cancer (spiritual destiny) and the South Node in Capricorn (Soul Purpose). This time creating a Cardinal Grand Cross (taking action to break out of the box of unconsciousness). Nov 06 the Nodes enter Cancer/Capricorn and Uranus retrogrades back into Aries and squares the Nodes (finding new ways of doing things). That is the day of the mid-term elections in the United States. Uranus key energy is “expect the unexpected”.
Our last aspect today is the Moon in Leo inconjunct Neptune in Pisces at 10.18 pm EDT. This is a significant energetic influence. Neptune in Pisces is the Oneness of All. Leo, as ego, does not want to lose control so avoids entering The Mysteries. But tonight is All Hallows Eve/Samhain when the veil between the land of the living and the land of the dead is thinnest. The land of the dead is spirit. The inconjunct aspect asks us to let go of anything that blocks us from connecting with our guides who live in that land that Neptune represents. Open your hearts to the Angels, Ancestors, and Totems who are your guides on your Path. November is going to be intense. You will need the help.
